Fossil Fuel Asset Risk Analysis: Clark University Endowment, Travis A. Dodge, B. Maiwand Akbari 2017 Clark University

Fossil Fuel Asset Risk Analysis: Clark University Endowment, Travis A. Dodge, B. Maiwand Akbari

Student Works

The environmental and social risks of climate change are well known and perhaps inevitable. The economic and financial risks are less so. The many financial risks associated with climate change embedded in endowment portfolio fossil fuel holdings are leading many institutional stakeholders to enter into dialogue and take action. Divestment is emerging as an effective strategy for limiting portfolio exposure and tackling climate change itself.

Our team’s goals were to assess whether the Clark University endowment portfolio faces any of these risks and evaluate the impacts on asset values. Our findings show that the Clark endowment does face these ...

Assembly Cells Versus Assembly Lines: Insights On Performance Improvements From Simulation Experiments And A Case Study, Danny J. Johnson 2017 Iowa State University

Assembly Cells Versus Assembly Lines: Insights On Performance Improvements From Simulation Experiments And A Case Study, Danny J. Johnson

Danny J Johnson

With the current emphasis on short product delivery lead times and customized product configurations, there is a need for systems that can quickly assemble small batches of customized product. While some plants are converting their assembly lines to assembly cells to achieve this goal, the reasons for the performance improvement resulting from conversion have not been well documented or understood, making it difficult to know when and where assembly cells are applicable. This research adds to the sparse body of literature in this area by examining the planned conversion of an assembly line to a set of parallel assembly cells ...

Competing With Free: An Analysis Of The Effects Of Tennessee Promise On Freshman Enrollment In Four-Year Colleges And Universities, Vicki Clark

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

In 2014, Tennessee’s governor, Bill Haslam, introduced Tennessee Promise - legislation that enabled Tennessee high school and home school graduates to attend two years of tuition-free higher education at qualifying institutions.

Warren E. Buffett, Todd A. Finkle

Todd A Finkle

The case flows from an entrepreneurial perspective based on the effect that Warren Buffett had on Tim Johnston, a recent graduate from Florida State University.  The case starts with Johnston’s difficult background and his desire to learn more about Buffett’s life.  His entrepreneurship professor at Florida State, Scott Silver, taught a variety of principles and lessons about Buffett over the two years that Johnston earned a degree in Entrepreneurship and Finance.  Silver, who became a close friend of Johnston, invited him to attend the 2016 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting and listen to Warren Buffett.  Together they learned a ...

Tsirik - Fold The Leaves So That Others May Be Guided: A Study Of How The Bribri Women Are Preserving Their Culture To Ensure A Sustainable Future For Their Community, Emily R. Blau

Capstone Collection

Bananas are one of Costa Rica’s largest exports, along with coffee, palm oil, and cocoa. The banana plantations are large-scale, are most often run by multinational companies, and are considered to be run as enclave economies (Equal Exchange, 2016). This monoculture crop production has been globally accused of human rights abuses said to include, but not be limited to, violating the rights of indigenous people and loss in culture and tradition. For this paper, I studied the effects that large-scale agricultural corporations have on the BriBri, a matriarchal and indigenous group who live on the Caribbean coast of Costa ...

Seniority_List: A Tool To Address The Challenge Of Airline Mergers And Labor Integration, Robert Davison, Sean Edmund Rogers Ph.D.

Center for Hospitality Research Publications

Integrating employee groups from separate firms into a combined, well-functioning workforce presents one of the most difficult challenges in a corporate merger. This has particularly been the case in the recent airline mergers in the U.S. that have left three large legacy airlines, namely, American, Delta, and United. Carriers in these mergers have, in some cases, seen years of arbitration and litigation, employee turmoil and labor union decertification, and delays in operational integration and the realization of anticipated merger synergies. In response to this situation, this report introduces seniority_list, a computer-based tool that can be used by unions, employee ...

The Pr Of Csr For The Casino Industry: A Review Of Challenging Corporate Social Responsibility: Lessons For Public Relations From The Casino Industry, Andrew B. Gustafson

UNLV Gaming Research & Review Journal

This is a review of Jessalynn Strauss' recent book, Challenging Corporate Social Responsibility: Lessons for Public Relations from the Casino Industry. Through an analysis of Casino’s CSR practices, Strauss raises some serious concerns about this alignment between CSR and PR, and provides reasons to doubt whether SCR done for strategic bottom line interests rather than purely ethical reasons will consistently accomplish what the casinos set out to achieve.

Retaining Professional Female Millennials Through Mentoring, Emily Schutte 2017 St. Norbert College

Retaining Professional Female Millennials Through Mentoring, Emily Schutte

Works by Masters of Business Administration Students

Organizational leaders seek educated, confident and ambitious employees. Therefore, the above description begs the question: How can one attract and retain such valuable talent?

Female professionals born between 1980 and 2000 are considered the Millennial Generation. Organizations that wish to attract and retain these women should facilitate effective mentoring relationships, since mentoring is proven to positively impact the careers of both millennials and women in the workplace (Leck & Orser, 2013; Tschantz, 2016).

A review of retention literature reveals a number of strategies that have been proven to keep good employees at a company for the maximum amount of time. Narrowing existing research ...


Implications And Effectiveness Of Half-Time Pay For Salaried Employee Overtime, Dillon T. Shellenberger 2017 University of Wyoming

Implications And Effectiveness Of Half-Time Pay For Salaried Employee Overtime, Dillon T. Shellenberger

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Half-time pay is an option for salaried employees to receive as an overtime benefit. Based on a fluctuating workweek schedule, employees with varying hours can be compensated for additional hours worked over 40, through the use of half-time pay. If an employee works less than 40 hours in a week, he/she will still receive the full salary compensation; however, any hours over 40 will receive a wage at half-time of normal pay. My research included examining current policies and analyzing the potentially positive and negative effects of half-time pay for salaried employee overtime. Factors such as retention, fairness, and ...

The Fifth Epoch: Socio-Economic Approach To Sustainable Capitalism, David M. Boje, Yue Cai Hillon

Markets, Globalization & Development Review

The purpose of this conceptual essay is to challenge the inevitability of living with the destructive beast of speculative market economics in the 4th epoch of global capitalism. We are facing an existential socio-ecological threat from the short-term excesses of financial capitalism, a socially irresponsible form that consumes without producing value and without bearing entrepreneurial risk, benefitting only the few. The fate of roughly 90% of humanity hangs in the balance. The primary contribution of this paper proposes a 5th epoch of capitalism, inspired by Savall and Zardet’s socio-economic and sustainable approach that restores human potential and ...
